The Lastest WeightWatcher Chronicle

Every Wednesday means weigh-in for me at WeightWatchers, and while I logged a +/- 0 lbs. last week, I'm happy to share that at today's weigh-in I was down -1.0 lb. for the week, which means I've lose -29.2 lbs. since I started this program back on April 7th, 2010.

At today's meeting we learned about the new "Lose For Good" campaign. Basically for every pound that WeightWatchers' members lose between now and October 23rd, the organization will donate a dollar to fight hunger in this country.

Honestly, I'm a sucker for that kind of philanthropic effort and it was just was I needed to recharge my efforts.

My goal for the duration of this LFG campaign, which runs for the next seven weeks, will be to lose at least 1.5 lbs. each week. Right now, that type of goal seems crazy since I've been hovering with no sigificant loss over the past four weeks. Regardless, I'm setting my mind to it - fully expecting my body to follow.

Once again, I'm optimistic that there will be less of me to write about next week.


  1. You can do it!!

  2. @Bill, thanks for the support and the beard looks great!!!

  3. @Kim, I know that I can count on you to help - so no chocolate trifle (even though I love it so, sigh)!!!

  4. Thanks for sharing Tor. I had no idea of that "Lose for Good" campaign. I missed our meeting this week, so that could be why. You are an inspiration. I know you can do it! Following your lead, I am going to set out to help this cause as well - all the while helping my own weight loss goals. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and story as it progresses. Truly an inspiration.

  5. @Laura, thanks for the continuing support. It's been a good week so far - I hope to finish it strong. Be blessed!
